I really enjoyed this one. I hope they will try for a 3rd installment.

I'm so glad it was not done in 3-D!

Some comment by Guy Ritchie & Robert Downey Jr. on 3-D here:

Ritchie has already signed for the 3rd one. WB has hired Drew Pierce for the screenplay, who is also writing Iron Man 3, and they're supposed to shoot in the U.S this time.

...as for Game Of Shadows, day one without a doubt. I loved it as much as the first one. Downey Jr., Law, Noomi, and Zimmer's delightful score.....

I thought the first film was really good, I felt this film had it's moments and some very interesting visuals (like the first) but was not nearly as good. It seemed to be trying too hard and didn't capture the fun of the first film as well.

Not trying I be rude, but the release date IS mentioned in the very first post. I haven't seen this yet, but a couple of friends of mine worked on this with their Phantom Flex high-speed camera. I hear the slow motion parts are very cool. I'll definitely give it a rent, though, as I wasn't a huge fan of the first.

I picked this up yesterday, hadn't seen it before and had a friend warn me that it was pretty bad.

I watched it last night and loved it, Robert Downey Jr was great, as ever.

I'm really looking forward to this Blu-ray release. I didn't catch it in the theaters but I'm not even slightly concerned about a blind-buy. June 12 can't get here fast enough!

Yes, it's completely region free, being a Warner title.

Are any of those Warner Bros. produced BDs? I'm pretty sure WB does not region code their BD. I'm using technical data from DVDBeaver to validate that statement.
